My hospital has started a central line team to observe and troubleshoot all central lines housewide- every day. We are changing dressings if needed. WE orginally were changing dressings with any amount and type of drainage. But for some patients we were changing dressings everyday-which is probably not a good idea. so, then we started to change dressings only if there was more than a scant amount of drainage. I have done a pretty extensive literature search and can not find any literature to support dressing changes for drainage one way or another. Please, let me know what you think.
